Along with the limestone hillside where the old vines reside, Vauthier is largely responsible for Ausone's success. He acquired the estate after years of inter-family legal battles and has poured his heart and soul into the property.

Expert Reviews

89 Points | International Wine Cellar , June 2014

Deep dark ruby.  Smoky blackberry, violet, peony and lavender on the aromatic nose.  Pure and silky on entry, then creamy and ripe in the middle, with a hint of flinty minerals adding complexity to the dark berry and floral flavors.  Finishes with utterly suave tannins and powerful, slowly mounting fruit.  An outstanding showing, but I dare say that's par for the course with Chapelle d'Ausone.  Pauline Vauthier told me that they don't consider Chapelle to be merely Ausone's second wine anymore, and she'll get no argument from me.
